I am told that the leak in my Ifiniti G35 is the Oil Filter Adapter gasket. How much should this replacement cost?

Numerous places oil can leak from could you narrow the field and provide a general location?

On a 2003 Infinity G35 coupe? The car has a new engine with less than 15000 on it. The sensore that is leaking is towards the front of the motor on the drivers side high up on the motor just below the engine cover beside the dip stick. What is involved in replaceing it? Is it the oil pressure sensor or the intake timeing sensor or cam shaft position sensor and how do I fix the leak. There are no check engine lights on. Do you have any diagrams or pictures to aid in the repair?
Thanks
Brian

Looks like the intake valve timing control solenoid, my software says that Nissan hasnt released the removal and installation procedure to the general public. Might want to take it to the dealer (gulp) for an estimate unless you can find a Nissan specialty shop in your area

There is a slight oil leak coming from the driver's side of the engine block toward the rear but in front of the steering (rack and pinion). Unfortunately I cannot determine the exact location. There is a metal oil line running (vertical) and there appears to be an alternator (?).

Thank you

Clean it off with a power wash first then watch to see if p/s fulid goes low or engine oil to see which it's using

Check oil cooler for cracks. Replace if found.

Make sure both mating surfaces are clean.

O-ring should aways be replaced after each disassembly. Never hurts to apply a little fresh oil to the new O-ring during assembly.

Align top cutout notch on oil cooler with protrusion on upper side of block. Tighten connector bolt to 36 ft-lb.

If still leaks, then I agree as mentioned adapter probably warped.
